Welcome to BookLikes - aannndd now I want to own this book. You make it sound like a fabulously fun read, and the quote has me thinking I'd enjoy McDowell's writing.

Off to scour the used book sites... :)
Hi Char! So glad to see you on this site too. Always following your reviews on Goodreads. Send me a direct message if you're interested in reading Clue. I'm just discovering McDowell but already consider myself a fan. Just finished Book 2 of the Blackwater series.

@Murder by Death, I'm assuming your name is in reference to the classic movie! I'm a fan of that one as well, although Clue is definitely better :)

Yep! I've loved the movie version since I was knee high to a bug, and it seemed a fitting name in the moment and not regretted it for a second. I found the novelisation of Murder by Death a few years ago, written by H.R.F. Keating; a brilliant retelling of the movie until the end, where sadly he went pear shaped. Still, I treasure that book and bless the day I found it on top of a random pile on the floor of a used book store. :)
Thanks for the tip about the Keating novelization! I'll have to hunt that down. I'd love to read it, even if the ending is a disappointment.
